COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial India-Style Brown Ale. TWENTY ONE is built on a foundation of dark specialty malts, framed by sturdy IBUs and crowned with a monumental dry hop addition of two of our favorites, Amarillo and Simcoe.

Draft at Churchkey. Clear deep maroon brown color, tan head. Aroma of real licorice, cocoa, espresso (or maybe cafe coretto). Taste is rich black coffe, bitter coffee, bitter pine. Very tasty.

LearninBeer (391) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 14, 2014
The aroma is hops, spruce, grass/floral. Pours a dark brown with a light brown head mostly diminishing and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter. The body is medium, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish bitter. OK

Poured from bomber into tulip glass. This was...not what I expected. Rather than an imperial brown, it just tasted like a black IPA. Hoppy and bitter, without out much malt or nutty flavors to balance. I had trouble finding the brown ale in this and was left fairly disappointed.

The roastiness and bitterness work together quite uniquely in this beer. When you smell it there are definitely raisins, molasses and some alcohol esters. Youíll think "barleywine" and thatís just the set up. The surprise comes in the first couple of sips. Roasty and some serious bittering hops finish with a caramel sweetness and some woodiness as well. Fun beer and Iím glad to be drinking it on a cold evening.

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours mahogany into the glass with a thick tan head that leaves chunky lacing. The nose is of woody hops and some alcohol. Flavors are of toasted sweet malt, wood, nuttiness, nicely balanced hops and finishes with a definitive note of Simcoe/Amarillo dry bitters. The full body has a hint of oak that complements the ABV well. Nicely put together, Iíd like to try this aged, once itís mellowed a bit.

deyholla (6953) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a near white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of grassy hops and a bit of earthy pine backed by some dark grains. Flavor has a good amount of earthy dark grains with some pine and grass backing.

22oz bottle picked up at Bevmo
Clear dark brown with a small beige head, spotty lacing. Aroma of dark malts and caramel. Taste of toasted malts, caramel and fruity
Ok

fattybladdy (613) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Dark brown in color with a tall foamy head. Malty, bready aroma. Dark toasty flavor with caramel, nuts and earthy hops.

PorterPounder (5695) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 22 oz bomber - split with Aurelius, Dark brown pour, thin khaki colored head, light lacing. Earthy aroma with some bitters, a hint of licorice. The flavor has some creosote, light licorice notes, some earthy essence, a finish that is menthol-like. Decently thick mouthfeel. Pretty solid - happy 21st Anniversary!

Aurelius (4355) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Nice barleywine style aroma. Good bomber and label. Deep brown. Tangy, woody, not highly hopped. Almost an ESB. A bit disjointed, but enjoyable. Thanks to PorterPounder.
